NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .
We are pleased to offer these new Limited
Edition selections for pre-orders. Each piece features a hand
painted design and will be signed, numbered and dated 2018 by
one of our talented designers. The Iceberg Paperweight was
made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Edition pieces
were handcrafted by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds,
exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.
Michelle Kibbe created this wonderful scene for our
8.75" Opal Satin Vase. Her hand painted design features a
gray squirrel carefully climbing onto a pine tree branch
complete with pine cones. The
details on the squirrel are so true to life that you may
expect to hear a warning
“kuk, kuk” or a flick of a tail.
Note the "alert" stance of its posture. Michelle used delicate bands
and soft golden-toned accents to provide a lovely frame effect
for her scene. Each Gray
Squirrel Vase is $160. Did you know. . . There
are more than 200 species of squirrels in the world. The
Eastern gray squirrel may be seen in parks, backyards, or in a
forest in the eastern half of the United States. This squirrel
plays an important role in "seed dispersal". When winter
approaches, squirrels bury their food in several locations.
Since they usually hide more food than they will eat, the
buried seeds and nuts sprout and begin to grow in these
locations the following spring.
Michelle Kibbe loves cats. . . and so do
we, so what better way to celebrate the upcoming
"Halloween" or Autumn season than with an adorable black
cat with golden eyes depicted on a 4" Opal Iceberg
Paperweight! Just look at the hand painted detail on those
eyes! Michelle added a golden-orange background... could
it be a Harvest moon? Front and back views of this
paperweight, made at Mosser Glass, are shown in the above
photo. Each Golden
Eyes Iceberg Paperweight is $80.

Kim Barley took one look at her final
design on this adorable Black Satin Sitting Cat Figurine
and decided to name it "Wolfie". We think it suits
this popular 3.5" cat figurine perfectly! "Wolfie" sports
white paws and a fur coat hand painted in tones of gray,
white and shades of golden yellow. Note those
marvelous black rimmed eyes.
Each Wolfie Sitting Cat Figurine is $80.
Above: Robin Spindler continues her
popular "Pumpkin Patch" design on our 8" Opal Satin
Chessie Cat Covered Box.
Appropriately named "Pumpkin Patch Dreamer", Robin's hand
painted design features a sleeping kitten nestled in a
blanket covered with falling autumn leaves. Large pumpkins
and vines adorn the back side. Robin added colorful autumn
leaves and acorns on the lid.
Chessie" was a popular cat character used
as a symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. This
artwork was used with their slogan that when traveling on
their railway you would "sleep like a kitten". Fenton
created this item especially for the C & O Railway
Each Pumpkin Patch Dreamer Chessie Cat Covered Box
Right and below: Robin's "Pumpkin
Patch" theme also continues on our 11.5" Opal Satin Vase.
Robin named this hand painted design "Pumpkin Patch
Buddy". Large orange pumpkins and two black cats are
featured on the front with more pumpkins and falling
leaves encircling the vase. The leaves appear to be
changing colors as they flutter down from the sky. The
photos below show more views of this impressive vase.
Note those big blue eyes of the "tuxedo" cats! One cat is
peeking over the top of two pumpkins at its buddy as it
wanders by. . . perhaps getting ready to pounce and
surprise the feline friend!
Did you know: Famous "tudexo cats" include Felix,
Sylvester the Cat. The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
also features a tuxedo cat. They’ve even been the subject
of poem that was turned into a famous Broadway musical —

The Black Capped Chickadee is one
of America's best loved birds, and Fenton artist
Michelle Kibbe has certainly done justice to them
on this one-of-a-kind hand painted vase (10.75"
tall) in Opal Satin glass. Chickadees are often
seen in small groups, and Michelle's meticulous
hand painting has captured three of them with
marvelous details as they perch amidst pine boughs
laden with pinecones. We can almost hear their
distinctive voices ... "chick-a-dee-dee-dee." Note
the carefully airbrushed back-ground hues and the
subtle purple buds within the pine needles. Also
note the gold bands and gold accents at the top
and bottom of the vase; the gold accents were done
with a special sponge technique.
Here's a great chance to acquire a bit of Fenton
Art Glass history. Made from original negatives in
the Fenton Archives, these two 8x10 photos show
barrels of Fenton glass being loaded on to the
Queen City sternwheeler on the Ohio River about
1907-1908. At this time, Fenton Art Glass shipped
glassware to some cities along the Ohio and
Mississippi rivers because those cites were more
accessible by boat than by rail. Barrels of packed
glassware would be carted from the glass factory
by the wagonload to the riverbank in Williamstown,
West Virginia. Once the sternwheeler was tied up,
the gangplank would be lowered, and the crew would
roll the barrels up the gangplank to the deck. One
8x10 photo shows the full length of the Queen City
sternwheeler, and passengers have gathered on the
upper decks to watch the loading begin (the
railroad bridge in Marietta, Ohio, is visible in
the background). The other 8x10 photo was taken a
few minutes later, and we can see where the
barrels are being secured on the deck for their
journey. This close-up photo shows Fenton Art
Glass Co. founder Frank L. Fenton (in light suit
and dark bowler hat) standing on the lower right
corner of the gangplank and watching the crew load
the barrels. The Queen City sternwheeler was based
in Cincinnati, Ohio, but riverboat records show
the Queen City on the Mississippi River as well as
the Ohio River. These 8x10 photos are high-quality
black-and-white prints on a special metallic paper
to heighten contrast and shipped in plastic sleeve
for extra protection.
Here's a great opportunity to own a piece of
Fenton history! In the mid-1960s, the Fenton Art
Glass Co. office area and the Fenton Gift Shop
underwent considerable remodeling. Attractive
brick facing was constructed on exterior areas,
and the iconic "Clarence" figure was mounted above
the gift shop entrance. Colored glass panels, made
by skilled glassworkers at Fenton, were placed
around the entrance door to the Fenton Gift Shop
and around the entrance door to the reception area
of the Fenton Art Glass Company. Demolition of the
Fenton factory was completed, but the colored
glass panels have been saved. This colored glass
panel measures 11.75" tall by 8.75" wide. We call
this color "amberina," because the pressed glass
panel was made with ruby glass and only the
thicker central area has the red hues
characteristic of ruby. There are a few minor
chips near the edges on the back side of this
panel. This colored glass panel has been signed by
Fenton Art Glass Co. president George Fenton and
by Fenton Gift Shop president Randy Fenton, and a
certificate of authenticity is also included.
Included in the photos is Jim Wingrove. Jim was
the "gatherer" as part of the glass shop (Sonny
Burdette was the presser) that made these glass
panels. Jim is shown pointing to one of the panels
in the door frame of the Fenton Gift Shop. These Fenton Art Glass
eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on
Wednesday, October 3rd,
